A Sitka spruce top is paired with East Indian rosewood sides and three-piece back in a classic combination called the Custom DC-MMVE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar. This special guitar features a black ebony fingerboard and bridge with a matching black pickguard, and is equipped with Martin SP Lifespan Phosphor Bronze strings. Plug into the new, state-of-the-art Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics for an added benefit and slide into another dimension. The D-14 is the base for this model and is the preferred instrument of many great artists. Includes hardshell case.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance
Martin exclusively debuts a new pickup and preamp, the Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification by Fishman, which offers the most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging, to preserve the unique and pristine acoustic tone of each instrument with studio microphone quality. In addition, the new streamlined Matrix VT Enhance will be offered on select models.

Both the Aura VT Enhance with Acoustic Imaging and the Matrix VT Enhance feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar.

With no control holes cut into the side of your guitar, Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance is discreet and simple to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls inside the sound hole and at your fingertips.

The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with more responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch.

    Comments about Martin Custom DC-MMVE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Love this guitar!!! I've owned a j45, taylor 816ce, gibson songwriter, ect...For the price this beats them all. Songwriter was better but 800 bucks more. Guitar is very underrated and needs more reviews. Spec sheet for this guitar is so wrong which is a bummer because I can't find a whole lot of info but from experience this guitar or at least mine is forward shifted X bracing not standard. Standard is 1 1/2 inch from sound hole mine is 1 inch from the sound hole and bass response is amazing. Gold closed back tuners not open back, Corian or bone Nutt (only going by what it feels/looks like to me) and tusq saddle.

      Comments about Martin Custom DC-MMVE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      My gosh this guitar is awesome. I just brought it home two hours ago. Can't put it down. First Martin I've ever called my own and I am proud to own it. Plays perfectly. Up and down the neck. No buzz. No dead spots. Great balance of tone with the Martin strings that came on it. The strings are new. It's a gem. First time I've not had buyers remorse because it's that wonderful to play and hear.
